9.2 The next Statement

Like last , next alters the ordinary sequential flow of execution. However, next causes execution to skip past the rest of the innermost enclosing looping block without terminating the block.[ 2 ] It is used like this:

[2] If there's a continue block for the loop, which we haven't discussed, next goes to the beginning of the continue block rather than the end of the block. Pretty close.



while (

something

) {
    

firstpart

;
    

firstpart

;
    

firstpart

;
    if (

somecondition

) {
        

somepart

;
        

somepart

;
        next;
    }
    

otherpart

;
    

otherpart

;
    # next comes here
}

If somecondition is true, then somepart is executed, and otherpart is skipped around.

Once again, the block of an if statement doesn't count as a looping block.
